3 1/2 stars -- Oistrakh and Oborin give a fresh and lovely account of the "Spring" Sonata here, although, as a previous reviewer noted on American amazon.com., the sound could be more present and a bit brighter. The "Kreutzer," however, is something of a disappointment. Partly that's a result of the sound (1962) too, but it just comes across as too tame and unimaginative. For perspective, I played the Argerich/Kremer (from 1994), and the wildness and wooliness of the piece come across. There's an element of playfulness in the first movement that seems to evade Oistrakh and Oborin, and the color and dynamic variety of both Kremer's and Argerich's playing make it a different experience. And there's nothing fussy about it. The energy level too is higher than the Russian pair's. Kremer and Argerich play as if they are enjoying the music as they play. Oborin and Oistrakh are much too sober. With all that in mind, the asking price (as I write) is far too high.

HASH(0x8c354c24) out of 5 stars delicate and innovative beethoven nos. 5 & 9 violin sonatas 25 Jan. 2013
By bob e. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
the kreutzer violin sonata is one of the definitive realisations of the potential interplay of these two important classical instruments. reinventing the form through spatial and hints of prokofiev-like dissonance, this philips recording is slightly dull in sound, but fully captures beethoven's grace and intensity with lev oborin fully comfortable supporting the great david oistrakh. very satisfied with this and hungry for more from these two. i am as ever indebted to the vast command shown in amazon reviews by santa fe listener for the lead-in to this gem.
